    Don't cut deals with libertarians, but make Republicans come out in favor of stuff like the Civil Rights Act, overtime pay, and so on that Libertarians oppose on principle.

    Point out that Libertarians would be totally okay with a business that banned hiring of known Christians.

    The deep, dark secret is that Libertarianism is far kookier and far nastier than the GOP. Make them define themselves apart, and the truth will out, chipping away at part of the Tea Party base.

      they don't know how to use their majority...
